Here is my first ever entry. I just got my camera and have a steep learning curve. All criticism appreciated.

Cropped it down, turned up the contrast and turned down the brightness. Thanks for the help. (5 years and 1873 days ago)

1st off congrats on your new toy! I like the new growth on the saplings surrounding the decaying fence it makes a very interesting subject. But imho you should consider cropping it down a bit, there's too much empty space on the left side, it detracts from the fence. You might also consider increasing you dof so more of the fence is in focus, and you are bit overexposed. Keep at it though, participating in these contests will help you learn a lot!

Welcome to the site. Your photo has a lot of promise, Suggest you crop it just to the left of the OutOfFocus stick, increase the contrast and darken the image a little.
You can replace your original image by going to 'My contests" and Edit Entry.
Good Luck

Welcome! I didn't see the original, but, the composition here is wonderful and pleasing to the eye. Nice subject contrast with the old fence and the new growth. Keep up shots like this and we'll see you at the top soon enough...nicely done
